DEC PDP-11/03 switch paddle, LED receptacle and console board

Rate this Entry
I have an MDB Systems workalike LSI-11 backplane which I am starting to get working. I thought it would be nice to build the DBCOK logic and console switches to have the same look and feel as the original PDP-11/03 console so I scripted up the specific DEC switch paddle and LED receptacle as part of the project (which is ongoing) so they can be 3D printed and use a tiny Arduino to do the powerup sequence.

If you have a PDP-11/03 or a PDP-11/05 with missing or broken switch paddles then this may be of use to you, as I think the paddle was an in-house DEC part.
